The ASBrS Board of Directors rarely awards the Lifetime Achievement Award, with Dr. Dowlat being only its third recipient. The award is given when an individual has made significant contributions to improving the practice of breast surgery or serves as an advocate to advance the quality of care for breast disease patients. Dr. Dowlat has distinguished himself in both of these categories. - For more details, click here.
